Amar’e Stoudemire is passionate about being a father.

In recent months he has joined panels and discussions about the importance of fatherhood.

Back in September, Stoudemire talked about the relationship he had with his father:

Here is a recent tweet from STAT, explaining his version of the acronym F.A.I.T.H:
